Well, if paragraphs and block elements need to be grouped together, I
would consider some of the section elements. Maybe this doesn't fit
exactly into the "empty wrapper" semantic, but I think it's pretty

Depending on where you have your paras and what you want to group, you
can also use task, procedure, the list elements, etc.
